I'm In A Season...

of biting my nails...

researching vbac's way more than I should...

worrying that I will go into labor in the middle of the preschool pick up line...

or that my water will break in the chickfila play land...

and watching re-runs of Golden Girls at night instead of being productive.

A Season Of...

anticipation...

excitement ...

arguing and practicing bad communication in our marriage like we do at some point during every other pregnancy...

and failing to see that we're just buckling under the pressure of our to-do list..

A Season Of...

saving...

stretching a buck...

shopping online to get great deals on diapers, bottles, and other sweet little baby things (maybe someday we'll shop for flat screens, and LCD TV stands...you know, like in 20 years.)...

and sadly, not frequenting Target as much because it turns out that that is an expensive habit :).

A Season Of...

being thankful...

feeling unworthy...

asking God for wisdom...

and waiting impatiently to smell that sweet baby smell.

A season of...

opening the bag of jelly beans while I'm still in the store...

eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal at 10pm...

gearing up to start walking every night in a few weeks to help move things along...

and wondering when to plan Reese and Charlotte's birthday party since they turn 5 the day after my due date.

A season of...

nesting...

cleaning closets...

falling asleep within 60 seconds of sitting down...

throwing things away...

and just wanting everything to be ready and perfect for the little guys arrival :).

A Season Of...

laughing with my closest friends...

dancing in the car with the girls...

rolling the windows down...

and bringing out my flip flops for good....it's a beautiful thing.

It's definitely a season of change around here, here's hoping we can keep up!

Hope you are doing amazon mom. It is great. 2 day free shipping on all items and 30% off diapers and discounts on wipes and formula. Message me if you have any questions about it. I do subscribe and save to get the discount and then cancel after it ships.

I had the longest nails before I had the girls, during the labor process I bit them all off to nubs by the time they were born! :)

Such an anxiously exciting time for you, praying for you to feel as much peace as possible and get as much done as possible!

It sounds like there's a lot going on for you these days, but it sounds like fun! Rather, it sounds like you're making it fun and enjoying every minute! We're excited about your little boy coming, too!
